2. Golden brown baked turkeys

3. Hot Chocolate w/whipped cream on top

4. My electric blanket

5. Fresh cut firewood

6. Frosty evergreens

7. The first gentle snowfall

8. Homemade vegetable soup

9. Bacon frying in a cast iron skillet

10. Spicy pumpkin bread

11. Long lazy winter weekends

12. Toasting marshmallows over glowing coals in the fireplace

***What would you add to the list?

Cuddling under the quilt with my husband.

Reading a good book while in bed drinking tea and with my two purring cats in my lap.

I'd add cool, crisp weather, so good for wearing sweaters with scarves and sleeping, and birthday season for our family; myself, husband, and sister are all November. :)

Great list, Barbara!

KKDJ1- The family gathering is what I'm looking forward to, also. Some of my best memories are of my family around the Thanksgiving table.

Some of you added just what I would add - a cup of hot apple cider and cuddling under a quilt with a good book. Always good.
